Mexico: APR installs first 14,40 meter APR Lux structures

Over the last two decades the plastic greenhouse industry has seen a major change with the increase of the standard bay size. Where 6,4 meters was the standard 20 years ago, a width of 8, 9,60 and later on 12,80 meters became more popular when growers started their search for more light.

Also Spanish greenhouse builder APR Greenhouses / Novedaded Agricolas followed these trends and is now adding the 14.40 meter APR Lux structure to their catalog.

Mexican growers especially prefer to install these super wide structures. According to Novedades Agricolas the APR Lux is the ideal design for growers that are looking for immense brightness. "The greenhouse does not only allow more light to enter the crop, but there is also better ventilation. As well as this there are few obstructions inside the greenhouse, and therefore it provides better accessibility to the work inside."

The first APR Lux greenhouses have been installed in Mexico, where growers are experienced with the impact of the extra wide structures on the crop productivity. "Currently APR is working on the development of new greenhouse models that are even wider in order to maximize production, performance and production quality," said the company in a news release.
